Although we have only put a small dent in what appears to be the longest semester ever, it’s safe to say that we are in dire need of a little weekend relaxation! Rather than simply being a time to catch up with friends and enjoy stress-free nights out, weekends give us the chance to hang up our heavy backpacks and leave our essay-ridden classes in the dust (at least until the often dreaded Monday rolls around). Rather than resorting to your comfiest duds in hopes of surviving the school week, weekend activities give us the long awaited opportunity to sport our latest purchases (Phillip Lim for Target, anyone?!), metallic Dr. Martens included.
Wandering through campus, I came upon this Fashionista embracing Southern Texas’ bi-polar temperatures in an ensemble ideal for the upcoming weekend. Since we are currently somewhere between summer and autumn, take a few notes from this Fashionsita and opt for a breezy, knitted top. The light weight fabric is ideal for warm afternoons and the occasional evening chilliness that comes with dinner out on the town. As much as it may pain you, for weekends surrounded by your loved ones, do everything in your power to refrain from going near a pair of yoga pants. Instead, follow in the footsteps of this Fashionista and sport around a tried and true pair of denim cut-offs. Whether a high-waisted pair or a classic low-rise fulfills your heart’s desire, the styling capabilities are nearly endless (think Fashion Week 2012)! In terms of footwear, nothing screams weekend freedom more than a pair of loud, yet strikingly chic combat boots! Follow in the manner of this Fashionista and finish off your weekend ready ensemble with a stunning pair for some well deserved R&R.
One Simple Change: Stressing for midterms? Swap the cut-offs for a fun pair of printed leggings to get you through your studying slump!
